I recently finished this one after revisiting it from several years back. Thank you for taking a look.

It’s only sin - ©KLMartin 2021

She was left out on the sidewalk
…just like the morning news.
Still just a kid, but understood
…and knew what she had to do.
It was the cold, hard truth.

As the years passed by, the youth in her eyes
…vanished without a trace.
She was left with scars on her soul and arms
…alone and so afraid.
That’s when she heard her name.

The devil said “Girl, I run this world
I can take away your pain.”
“Just trust me now, I’ll show you how.
Let me tell you what to take.”
...”This is the only way.”

“It’s only sin.
You may walk away, but you’ll be back again.
It’s only sin.
And it’s far too late in a battle you can’t win.
I’ve been waiting for this day...for you to look my way.
It’s only sin.”

She was wrapped up in the darkness
…ready to stop the fight.
But she bowed her head, folded her hands
…then began to cry.
Praying into the night.

She said “My Lord I surrender.”
As she fell down to her knees.
“I don’t deserve the right to walk in your light
Can you forgive me please?”
...”Is it too late for me?”

The Lord said “Child, you’ve been lost for a while
Let me wipe away your tears.”
“Down those cold dark roads you were never alone
I was always there.”
...”There’s no more need to fear.”

“It’s only sin.
It’ll wash away and you’ll be new again.
It’s only sin.
And my love for you, it will never end.
I’ve been waiting for this day...for you to look my way.
It’s only sin.”
